I just had new gears installed. But now I have noticed when I engage the locker in the front and rear they both immediately come on ( the locker indicator light). it used to always flash a few times before engaging and disengaging. Now when i press the switch , the light goes on and off immediately. Should it flash a couple times until it engages and disengages?? I only tried it in the garage not wheeling, so Im not sure if it is working.

Does the pump turn on? With the axle on jack stands and the light on, do the tires move in the same direction when spun? If they do, then it works.

While screwing around with my lockers today in the driveway ironically :roll: I found that rolling at 3 mph or less the lockers engaged much faster than sitting or going faster. 4wd also was easier to engage at 1-3 mph.

Hopefully it helps someone or else i'll feel dumb yet again :dhorse:

Also check that the sensor switches in the axles are in correctly. If they are not then you will think its locked when its not. Gregert got it right by having you jack it up and test it out.
